Leading for Ancilla were sophomores Dylan Phair with 22 points, and Anderson McCoy with 21 points. Freshman Jair Rodgers added 12 points and DK Fox pulled down nine rebounds.

However, when you dig yourself a 26 point hole at halftime, it’s hard to overcome, especially against a good team like Lansing,” remarked head coach Aaron Butcher. “We didn’t come out and defend with the edge that we needed to in the first half.
